Represented by

Giuseppe Vassallo (Palermo, 1990), after a degree in Exhibit Design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo, finished his studies in 2018 specializing in Art Graphics at the same institution. He collaborates with several galleries and participates in various exhibitions in Italy and abroad. He was selected by the jury chaired by Philippe Daverio for the final exhibition of the "Mestre Painting Prize 2020." In 2018 he obtained an artist residency, with a final solo exhibition, at the Italian Cultural Institute in Budapest.

Vassallo understands painting as a discipline of thought. His is a pictorial vision rooted in the structural values of tradition but, at the same time, projected toward strategies of representation related to photography and, even more, cinematography.  His paintings always originate from the reality that surrounds him.
